Hug the Library! They really love us!

handsaroundlibrary2On a chilly, sunny Saturday afternoon more than 50 Poestenkill Library lovers bundled up and gathered outside to “hug” the library, in celebration of Love Your Library month. It was a multigenerational event and it was wonderfully planned by LouAnne Lundgren, Library Board President. (LouAnne had heard about an event like this during a session at the New York Library Association Annual Conference in Saratoga that she attended this past November.)HandsAroundTheLibrary10
After getting everyone in position, (thank you Mary Lynch!), several amateur photographers took great photos to document this brief, but fun event. Then everyone hustled inside for hot cocoa and delicious heart-shaped cookies and chocolates. It was fun to hear people discuss what it was about the Poestenkill Library that had them standing in the cold, holding hands with strangers, to give the library a hug. It was great to introduce these supportive patrons, staff, trustees, adults and children to each other.
There are many more photos from this event on the library’s Facebook page. You can access them using the icon on the bottom of this page. You do not need a Facebook account to view the photos. If you do have a Facebook account, we hope you will give us your comments. We would love to hear from you!
